Street vendor, Tunis medina

A street vendor in the Tunis medina. He came in his pinstripe suit and plastic chair to set up matches and chewing gum and other nicknacks in front of a shop. Pedestrians would greet him respectfully and buy this or that. The Medina, an architectural maze combining mosques, tombs, spices and silver, and treasures from Andalusia and ancient Rome, has been serving customers since about 700ad
